Ornstein Reveals Arsenal’s Stance After Club Enter Talks About Signing 25 Year Old

Paris Saint-Germain have entered talks with Arsenal about signing right-back Hector Bellerin, according to The Athletic‘s David Ornstein.

The reliable journalist has said that while the Gunners would be open to the 25-year-old staying at the Emirates, they are prepared to sell if the right offer comes in for him:

There are a few reasons why Bellerin may be allowed to leave. Firstly, the London club need funds to finance deals for other players, with the club still keen on signing Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey and Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.

Secondly, head coach Mikel Arteta feels he has a ready-made replacement in Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Until recently, they were prepared to sell the 23-year-old but he has impressed playing in the wingback role in recent months.

The final reason is Bellerin himself. While the Spaniard is not desperate for a move, it is thought he is open to a new challenge if one presents itself. PSG have reportedly tabled a £30m bid and it remains to be seen if the Gunners will accept it.
